No: 167, 19 May 2022, Press Release Regarding the Various Activities and Statements Made on 19 May 2022 in Greece

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 19.05.2022

We categorically reject the delusional statements made by the Greek authorities on the pretext of the anniversary of the unfounded "Pontian" claims, which completely distort history.

It is regrettable to see that the Greek authorities continue their irrational efforts to misrepresent history. We also condemn the efforts of the anti-Türkiye lobbies to deceive public by bringing these biased claims to the agenda in third countries.

It is clear that the efforts of those who try to draw enmity from history and mislead the young generations will not serve peace and stability.

Instead of relying on falsified historical narratives contradicting reality, it would be more reasonable for Greece to face the facts regarding the crimes against humanity that were established by the Lausanne Peace Treaty, as included in the report of the Allied Powers Investigation Commission, committed by Greece during its occupation and invasion attempt of Anatolia. Likewise, it would be appropriate for those who make such unfounded claims to remember the brutal crimes and atrocities perpetrated against other religious or ethnic groups, particularly the Turks, including the 1821 Tripolitsa massacre.

We invite Greece to work together for peace, stability and a prosperous future on the basis of cooperation instead of trying to distort the facts.

Atatürk
